In my capacity as acting photographer .... The sky was blue and the sun was hot
Very good stand in photography Tony, Gregs gunna have to watch his back .lol
So many great kombis this year .,,,,
What was the final count? Anyone know?
Over 250 kombis on the oval at Old Bar this morning. Each one quite different. What a sight to see.
Thanks for the photos Mr. Bagman. Looks like it was another day of great weather. That's 4 in a row now.
Saw a T3 dual cab heading north on the M1 on Saturday but couldn't say he was heading for Old Bar. Then we saw a lowlight heading north on the M7. Obviously headed for Old Bar - much roof decoration (board, suitcases and the like). I hope he didn't get caught on the M2 as it was queued back many kilometres due to a bad truck accident.
Maybe next year... But I have lots of nieces and nephews yet to be married... And Berrima bookshop is a nice place. There was even a 1969 lowlight there for the photos.
Nice work Tony - could have taken a better shot of me though - I look like I am telling someone off!! Haha - no just kidding, they are great photos.
Fabulous weekend again - bit of a shame that David McMahon was unwell as we could have seriously used his help with the kombi display side - the change in organising committee left a little to be desired and an aggro bloke having a go at Lorraine on Sunday morning at 7am when we were setting up the meeting point that we have had for the last 10 years left a really bad taste. If he is reading this, please send me a message because I have no idea who you are or what your problem was (although I seriously doubt you would be but you never know).
Get better soon David - we need you fighting fit for next year.
Great to catch up with so many KC'ers again.
I trust everyone got home safely and without mechanical incident.
37 degrees around the back of Sydney, and still 32 when we got home. (Cabin temp about 4 degrees hotter...).
Not a day I'd usually pick to do a 7.5 hour cruise, in a non air conditioned Kombi......but so worth doing, after such a great weekend.
Another great long weekend away with plenty of kombi action.
Great weather, good surf and good kombi people.
The Saturday afternoon cruise is getting bigger with full length of the run way air strip 4 cars wide with kombis.
Im not sure how many were there on the cruise but it was a great turn up an the crowds loved it
Heres some of my photos I took of the weekend of most of the lowlights in the show.
what a great car to find out west and have for your sons first car. (70 deluxe)
Just campers forsale 70 Lowie
Allan and Angela from the north coast owned this 71 deluxe
If you like big shinny wheels you,ll like this one then.
Dave from the south coast who owns this cool panel had his drive shaft fall off on the way up on the start of the A1 highway on Friday .
It caused a 5 klm traffic jam and was on the news that night.
He got it towed across town to some Vw specialist who fixed it and he made it up for the event.
central coast owned early panel
Some but not all the T3's from Old Bar, Think there were 25 there and more outside.
heres some more lowlights.
Central coast based 72 rat. It one a trophy for best Rat of the festival.
I dragged this one out of a chook farm a few years ago from Peats ridge.
Great pics guys
253 was the count at midday on Sunday, with plenty of others that chose not to be involved, parked outside………
What's the deal with all those "car parkers"?
Are they just too tight to pay the lousy $10 entry fee?
Thank you EVERYONE for coming in your Kombis to the Old Bar Beach Festival for 2015.....Your Kombi makes the Festival what it is , and this year the "official count " was 253 which was a RECORD for the Festival.
